TSMG review by Gordon Highland

This is a really entertaining noir tale set in a near-future Melbourne: our only city left, post-apocalypse. Blade Runner meets The Third Man is an apt description.

Floyd, our hero, is a “seeker” who Read more…

TSMG Book Launch 10-8-11 smaller

Melbourne/Australia launch party of TSMG, 10 August 2011

Care for a wayward synopsis?
In a tightly-wound nutshell, Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat is a sci-fi/noir/post-apocalyptic tome (with a sense of humour) – and it’s set in Melbourne, Australia, as the last city in the world. So we always had to do a book launch there.
The fact that it’s Andrez’s hometown is an added bonus.

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat review @ The Future Fire

“The dim and gritty atmosphere is expertly set, using a massive amount of references to film noir and pop culture, courtesy of our narrator’s nostalgic love for film and all things reminiscent of simpler times… A compelling, well-written narrative with fantastic imagery and a perfectly set tone… This book does a fabulous job of highlighting the complexities and dangers of current world social, economic and political climates.

Andrez Bergen interview @ Lip Magazine

“I loathed Blade Runner when I studied it in twelfth grade, and to the dismay of my class, I was extremely vocal about it. And just to clear something up: I aced the unit, so I did “get” it. But nearly ten years on, I still have nightmares about being forced to watch it. So when I was sent a copy of Tobacco Stained Mountain Goat by Aussie ex-pat Andrez Bergen and discovered it had been compared to Blade Runner, it made me a little apprehensive to flick through the PDF.

I shouldn’t have been worried, and flicking though became devouring every sentence. Read more…

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat review @ Farrago Magazine

“The author’s self-deprecation helps ground his writing, preventing him from self-indulgence and losing himself in intellectual pretension… All in all Tobacco Stained Mountain Goat is a great read: a well-rounded book from an well-rounded individual [that] easily translates into this expat Australian’s homage to Melbourne and its culture.” Read more…
